Front Fender riser kit Engineering
« on: May 17, 2011, 09:48:57 AM »
Just wondering Those that have it  :017:
And if your some experience in engineering drawings  :017:
Ok you might start getting to what is following  :009:
Then make us a nice drawing of both sides en sizes etc. for 30mm lift.
Seeing that I do have skilled Fitters and Turners and a Engineering that Loves bikes.
I can with out even wondering let them be made.

Gideon did you ever get your drawings?  I couldn't do 30MM but was able to make them for 20MM.  :028:

No didn't get drawings. Maybe there scared I'll give bag reviews  :004:
Yes the 20mm I checked is a better choice, looking at the Super Tenere its about 20 and the 1200GS Adventure and the KTM.
Nice if you have people you can pester at night  :008:

You can mail me your if you have something I can work on will not have the bike for a while.

Sorry, I tried posting pic's once but didn't have much luck.  My lovely wife posted them for me on another thread but then you couldn't enlarge them.  I just haven't had time to figure it out.  Summer finally came and that same lovely wife has kept me quite busy...   :087:

Can you even raise the fender by 20mm.  Looking at mine, 800 not xc, I would say there's no room to raise the fender at all, unless you replace the brake lines with straight runs from the master cylinder and do away with the loop over the fender.

Yes, on my XC w/ABS I was able to raise it 20MM safely without stress on the brake lines.  Anything more on my bike may have caused problems.  I had a dealer in Reno, Nevada claim they raised one 40MM without running new brake lines.  There was no way I could go that much on my bike.  The front fender setup on the roadie is different so I don't know about those.
